News Stephen King’s ‘IT’ Adaptation Will Be Scary and Rated-R Published 3 years ago on February 9, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Andy Muschietti’s IT adaptation is shaping up to be an exciting project for many fans, which just keeps building more momentum. We can’t lie, all of us at Dark Universe are so ready for the new Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard) to pop up in this film, and we can all experience the terror in theaters with an R-Rating! Producer Dan Lin just confirmed this information to Collider about an R-Rating: “It is a rated-R movie. If you’re going to make a “Rated-R movie”, you have to fully embrace what it is, and you have to embrace the source material. It is a scary clown that’s trying to kill kids. So of course that’s going to be a rated-R movie. The kids are amazing. You very much get a Stand by Me vibe as far as their camaraderie and the way they joke with each other and that they really care for each other. They do have a scary clown that’s taken over the town of Derry, so it’s going to be rated R.” Part one of Andy Muschietti’s IT adaptation will hit theaters on September 8, 2017. “in a small town in Maine, where seven children known as The Losers’ Club come face to face with life problems, bullies, and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.“ Bill Skarsgard stars as Pennywise, the scary sewer-dwelling monster who shows himself as a clown. Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor are known as the modern Losers’ Club. Creature performer Javier Botet plays The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, a bully who torment the Losers’ Club. Andy Muschietti (Mama) directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman and Chase Palmer. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Barbara Muschietti produce.
